A Bit of Snow
David and Rachel's move last Saturday went quite smoothly and very quickly too. They had lots of help and we were done by 11:30. Waited around for lunch then went home to rest and also realized that somewhere along the line I had pulled a muscle in my arm that was actually quite painful. Ended up missing a couple of trips to the gym this week as a result.
Met with the children's ministry leader on Tuesday to share songs I know that I think could be used in their Sunday morning program. I've volunteered to lead some singing a couple of times a month. It's neat to think these songs (and me) can still be used to be a blessing (maybe I better see how it goes before I say too much;)).
I actually did play guitar on Sunday morning for the service and it seemed to go very well. I got lots of positive feedback anyway so that was a nice encouragement.
I plowed (pun intended?) through a couple of lighter books this week. "The Charlatan's Boy" by Jonathon Rogers was a fun read and "The Identity Man" by Andrew Klavan was a pretty engrossing (though sometimes racy) thriller. Not as much walking so not as much music. Did listen to some episodes of "The Blank Squirrel Podcast", which I imagine very few people have heard of - it's by a musician from our last church, and I do think he does a pretty nice job with it.
